Episode #194: Randall Slavin / Photographer

Visual Revolutionary

Celebrity photographer Randall Slavin joins the podcast to talk about growing up in the shadow of Hollywood with early dreams of rock stardom that would morph into dreams of the silver screen, and how that all shifted one day when he walked into a headshot studio across the street from a job he hated and had his life changed by the power of photography. During our conversation we talk about the struggle that was his early acting career and how he loved the immediacy of taking photos, how the early snapshots he took of his group of friends in legendary venues like The Viper Room would become some of his most cherished work, how going on a Safari with Charlize Theron would become a huge jumping off point to the career he’s known for today, how he's evolved over time and slowly thinned out his gear closet and returned to some of the simplicity he loved about photography in the first place, and the advice he gives to others chasing their own dreams.

The Seventy-Fifth One... and a revisit with Randall Slavin

GENERATION RIPE

Episode 75 and Wendi and Dfernando revisit their guest interview with Hollywood actor-turned-renown photographer Randall Slavin.  Picking up a camera didn't start out as an artistic pursuit for Randall Slavin. While working a dead end job in a gas station, he wandered into a local photography studio and struck up a friendship with the owner. The owner took the young Slavin under his wing and taught him a few photography basics, then promptly fired him a few months later.  With nowhere else to turn, Slavin put one foot in front of the other and never looked back. In the years since and through his lens, he's documented his journey.As an actor he was seen on numerous classic TV shows: ROSEANNE, CYBILL, BEVERLY HILLS 90210, THE PRACTICE, ANGEL, to CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, and on film in ZOOLANDER, PRIMAL FEAR, and LEGENDS OF THE FALL.  Randall Slavin had his photography debut in the prestigious New York Times Magazine and his work has appeared in Vanity Fair, GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone and many others.  Slavin had his first exhibit in Paris in 2008 and a solo show at Annenberg Space For Photography in 2011. He received the 2011 Hollywood Style Award for "Photographer of the Year."From the vinyl seats of Hollywood nightclubs in 1999 to glossy cover shoots in New York, Slavin has captured snapshots of it all, encapsulated in his debut photography collection, WE ALL WANT SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.  Featuring stunning portraits and spirited candids of the most recognizable people in Hollywood, Slavin offers us a peek behind the curtain in this ultimately revelatory collection that will last a lifetime. Also on Episode 75, Wendi and Dfernando talk about the late great fashion icon Andre Leon Talley, and Dfernando shares his experience attending a post-screening Q&A for the 2019 Truman Capote documentary THE CAPOTE TAPES that featured Talley.  Wendi shares "procrasturbating" - the art of putting things off till the last minute.  On THE RIPE REPORT, Wendi shares The Republic of Tea Daily Beauty Blueberry Lavender Herbal Tea, and Dfernando discovers the new NBC TV workplace comedy AMERICAN AUTO, created by Justin Spitzer and starring Ana Gasteyer (now streaming on NBC OnDemand, Hulu, and Peacock TV).  Watch Wendi and Dfernando and their TEAM GENERATION RIPE: Greg Covey, Shelley McLendon and Ponciana Badia on Season 7 Episode 2 of CELEBRITY FAMILY FEUD - now on ABC OnDemand and Hulu and on the GENERATION RIPE website.  Follow us on our Instagram:Wendi McLendon-CoveyDfernando ZarembaGENERATION RIPE... and our guest Randall SlavinRemember to subscribe to GENERATION RIPEAnd rate & leave us a review by clicking HERE!Visit Dfernando Zaremba's website: dfernandozaremba.com

Ep 33. Randall Slavin: Celebrity Photographer

Story + Rain Talks

A Timeless Vision For Those In The Spotlight. Hollywood runs through photographer Randall Slavin’s veins. He was born in the city of stars and learned and honed his craft at a none other than a headshot studio right off of famed Sunset Boulevard. When Story + Rain founder and EIC Tamara first met Randall, she had just moved to LA to work as a celebrity stylist and one of their most memorable shoots was with a young Lily Aldridge, probably one of her first shoots ever. With impeccable taste and a way with talent, Slavin is a photographer that captures timeless imagery of those in the spotlight. Randall shoots the Story + Rain Screened series of actors and our cover stories. At the end of last year he debuted his first book, a collection of decades of photos he was able to capture because of his intimate access and the trust between he and the notables that interested him, some of them friends, shot both personally and for jobs. On this podcast we talk about the story behind his first celebrity photograph, all the elements that come together during a shoot, how a shoot can and can’t flow, what makes a woman sexy, which celebrity he’s worked with the most, his idea of a dream job, how he got started and more.1.
